After congratulating Mike Zimmer on Wednesday, former head coach Bill Parcells gave him three more things to write down. Zimmer wouldn’t share what those were with reporters after his introductory news conference on Friday, but according to ESPN NFL Insider Chris Mortensen, Parcells’ three points were:
1. Your best friends will disappoint you.
2. Four or five things happen in pro football every day that you wish wouldn’t happen. If you can’t handle those, you need to get another job.
3. It’s lonely.
Those are some pretty good tips to be honest, it will be interesting to see how Zimmer handles his new role.
